Say what you like about the stories she is in, the character I think had buckets of potential and was pretty awesome. I would absolutely love to see her return in the new series. Fandom has a way of making every female on the show the Rani until proven otherwise so I think her actual return would prove popular and might even put a stop to the speculation.

Any other fans/haters? What are your thoughts?

Considering how much about this era I dislike, The Rani isn't one of them. She isn't the best villain the show has ever seen but I think with the right writing she could be absolutely brilliant. I'd be all for seeing her return.

I love the Rani and would love to see her return. She is one of the great classic characters that I think they could really work well into NuWho.

It would be great to see her again. Whatever Pip & Jane Baker's faults, they created a great character in the Rani, and I'd love to see her in the new show - hopefully with rather better writing than she had in her one other DW appearance so far!

He is also vain, ego-centric and quite mad

My only fear with bringing the Rani back is that I wonder if the writers would be able to resist adding a "sexual" element between her and the Doctor. One of her great strengths was the fact that despite being played by a famous glamour-puss, she was almost completely asexual, treating each life form as a specimen to be examined. In many ways she was the anti-Jack Harkness. I fear that may be lost in Nu-Who.

I was a bit aprehensive. I'd only ever really seen her in Dimensions In Time and the less said about that the better, but she really impressed me in this. She is definately a character I think would work well in the new series. She sort of put me in mind of Kovarian. It would have been awesome if it was revealed in the end that they were one and the same.

I can definately see the sort of mad similarities with Kovarian. The show needs more strong female baddies

I think The Rani is awesome and I would love to see her again. I think this story marked her best appearance but given the writing team they have these days I think they could really do some awesome things with the character now.

I'd agree with this. It would be nice to see her return but I don't think we ever will. At least not under Moff

I hadn't thought of it, but I can see the similarities to Kovarian.  I'd love to see the Rani back.
